Their buffet breakfast as part of our "package" is excellent. I have been to a lot of hotels and resorts but the way they prepare it is undeniably excellent. My personal favorite is how they cook the omelette without overdoing it without you even watching! The variety of food from day to day has been cleverly chosen, cheers to that.... More

I learned that Amorita has hired a chef for Saffron and it definitely shows in the dishes. Taste is excellent - all served warm and well-plated. They also added twists to the regular Filipino dishes and I would highly recommend the kare-kare and the turon. My husband previously stayed and tried their Steak Nights and Grill Nights. However, we stayed... More

Went back 2 weeks back with friends. We recommended the place since we really enjoyed our stay in the resort a year and a half ago. Food was still good, the in house baked rolls are still the same that I loved then. Got the Chicken Binakol which is essentially chicken in coconut broth. And the other dish that I... More

This was our first experience of Saffron and we were not disappointed. It had been recommended and it lived up to its reputation. No gaps in the service. Food was excellent. Happy to recommend this quiet small lovely restaurant.

It was my second time to visit Bohol with my friends when I heard about Amorita that they are having a buffet there every Fridays and Saturdays. We were able to visit the resort since it is just along the beautiful Alona Beach in Panglao. The resort is quite big though as we were told by the lady we asked... More

We visited the Saffron for their Saturday Buffet dinner and requested a table away from the restaurant, out under the tree, overlooking the beach. On arrival, they had seated us right next to the buffet, but fixed it quickly. The setting and view are wonderful, very romantic and hard to beat anywhere else on Alona Beach. The service was professional... More

Beautiful me was turned away by the security guard at the door. We were told we could not enter. Only "diners" are allowed to enter; dont I look like I eat alot? What a terrible place to judge people based on their "resort wear." Not friendly on this island of smiles; so I guess the people inside are even worse.... More

Do you want to spoil yourself? Do you want to enjoy food? Do you need ambiance to go with that too? Then dine in the Safron restaurant. If I am to choose the best places to dine in Panglao, Safron would have to be in the top 3. Why? Service is on point. A variety of food and a good... More
